A little help forecasting log sizes

What's the best method to forecast log file sizes?  We're just getting started with Identity Suite and I need to forecast out storage costs for retaining log files in S3 but I can't find anything to use as a guideline.


Our environment consists of 2 of the Identity Suite Vapps, 2 Policy Servers and 2 Access Gateways which also run the connector servers.


We have over 10s of thousands of AD users with a few other smaller user stores and expect to eventually have about 100 integrations with different apps that will authenticate through the CA solution.


Right now, just running idle we're collecting a few hundred MB of logs per day, but I strongly suspect that will increase greatly when we start adding in users and apps.



Does anyone have any equations or guidelines to use for estimating total daily log sizes ?
